    While walking my dog through a local park I spotted a Charlie Brown doll (honest, it's not mine) sitting on a park bench surrounded by autumn leaves and thought it was an appropriate photo for fall. No doubt some wee child is sad that they've lost their C…

  • HIGH PRESSURE JOB

    Worker blasts concrete wall with a pressure washer at a skate park in Victoria BC Canada. Seems the city owned park was covered in graffiti and someone at city hall wanted it removed. I think it's an excellent "blank canvas" for talented young graffiti ar…
